Domaine Georges Lignier 2013's - Well reviewed and still good value
Prices will rise next week due to the drop in the Australian Dollar
Domaine Georges Lignier was one of our first Burgundian domaines and is still one of our most popular. The wines of today, made by Benoit Stehly, the nephew of Georges, are aromatic and wonderfully supple in a classic style. That is not to say light, simply that the nuances and character of the vineyards are allowed to shine above extractive winemaking and heavy oak handling.
Fans of Lignier and Red Burgundy in general should take a good look at these wonderful wines. The Clos St-Denis, the cheapest of the Grand Crus, is a real winner in 2013. It has been brilliantly reviewed and we currently have it available in bottle and magnum. But make sure you don't miss the full range!
To view the full range on our website click here. We have Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-St-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Combettes, Clos St-Denis, Clos de la Roche and Bonnes Mares - many of them also in MAGNUM!
All of the wines are still available at our "old" prices. Next week, to reflect the drop in the Australian Dollar against the Euro, we will be forced to increase prices by 10%.

My pick of the Lignier basket, this is so pure and with trade mark, ripe, raspberry juice and cherry notes. Though 2 of the 4 barrels are new, this is hardly touched by raw wood flavours or too much vanilla and spice. There is power and elegance in the same glass. The Morey, Clos des Ormes and this Clos St Denis are contiguous and give the best impression of the domaine. Difficult to resist all three! 2022 to 2031
